Awesome route. Boulder problem start is a hilarious heel hook followed by a haul on to the ledge. Managed it okay, but got tired about 3/4 of the way up getting on to the ledge before the top and had to rest on the gear. Managed the top out fine after a quick rest! Will get it clean next time!

Knackered when I did this, had to rest on a bit of gear. Nice moves though.

Took two goes to commit to first move. Easy above that.

Awkward high stepping start but on jugs, solid jamming, which can be avoided if your not a fan of self harm

What a great and strenous climb! Bouldery start (taken on right side of crack (arete) right, hadn't realised you were supposed to go straight over crack) I would say more 5a for the strong, probably even harder if you dont have good power to weight ratio! ended up sitting on the ledge after this placing two pieces of gear, moved up abit into a stenuous position with one jam and one pinch whilst I placed another two pieces of gear (yes by this point I'm beginnning to get abit tired, it feels more overhanging than it is!). Move up a couple more moves, and place another piece of gear and a nut which I had loosely placed in a failed attempt at putting it in fell out! Pretty exhausted now and its quite a bulge you have to get over on this, OK holds though. Reach up onto the ledge, try and jam but theres nothing there, reach up to the next ledges lip and stand up! Belly flop onto it and have a nice long rest and place another piece of gear. Then an easy move up and a relatively easy mantleshelf (Dad did a beach whale mantleshelf, hoping he was just trying to make me giggle) and it's over, I sit at the top and try and rest my poor little arms from the serious pounding I've given them today! Should had just placed one piece of gear each time rather than two and sure I wouldnt have been quite so tired by the top! Realised I don't trust my gear still though. Ohwell laced it and I will try and get more confident, still deffonately worth atleast 2 if not 3 stars! Had a right barrel of laughs on it whilst I was getting my ass good and solidly kicked!
